Excerpts from the Journal-Topics.com:

The Rolling Meadows City Council agreed to sell a 2016 Ford rescue squad valued at $120,000 and a 1994 International/Hackney Hazmat squad valued at $10,000. Both vehicles will be replaced by a new squad that can handle hazmat, technical rescue, swift water, and investigations.

The reduction will also allow space in the firehouse for a Mutual Aid Box Alarm System squad that the city will be able to use. That vehicle has an air compressor and bottle storage needed for fires and specialty incidents, features the city currently does not have. Rolling Meadows will get use of the vehicle in exchange for routine maintenance on it.
